Worlds of Flavor®

Plan Your Visit (Accommodations and More)

Location

After celebrating 20 years at The Culinary Institute of America's Greystone campus in St. Helena, CA, culminating in an 2018 anniversary edition that you can revisit here, Worlds of Flavor in 2019 is moving just down the road to Napa, at the CIA's newest campus, The Culinary Institute of America at Copia. Located about 90 minutes north of San Francisco off Highway 29, our street address is 500 1st Street, Napa, CA 94559. Your senses will first be awaken by the famed, beautiful Copia gardens and the exterior artwork (hint: look up!), before you enter a light-filled building adorned by floor-to-ceiling windows that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor.

Transportation and Parking

You are responsible for providing your own transportation to and from the CIA. This includes air and/or ground transportation from your place of residence and daily ground transportation.

Dress Code

Suggested dress code is business casual attire; chef’s uniforms are not necessary. Conference activities involve sitting for general sessions and seminars in classrooms, walking around to explore the marketplace, walking outside, and standing to watch the guest chefs cook at demonstration workshops. Northern California often experiences showers in November, so you may want to bring an umbrella to protect yourself from the elements, and come prepared with layers for warmer and cooler environments so that you can adjust your own temperature accordingly. Comfortable, closed-toe, low-heeled shoes are suggested for those participating in the kitchen workshops.
